Lost in the Trump news cycle.
Last Saturday (March25) police responded to to a report of arson at the LGBT friendly Community Church of Chesterland, Ohio where a Drag Queen Story Time event was due to take place.
A racist “White Lives Matter” neo-Nazi member was arrested yesterday in connection to firebombing.
Via Law & Crime:
“A racist “White Lives Matter” member firebombed an Ohio church that planned to host a “Drag Queen Story Time,” federal prosecutors say. Ohio resident Aimenn D. Penny, 20, faces up to 30 years imprisonment if convicted on two charges of malicious use of explosive materials and possession of a destructive device in the March 25 attack. The FBI reported finding a Nazi flag, a White Lives Matter of Ohio T-shirt, and other hateful memorabilia in Penny’s home.”
“Penny is one of the men suspected of throwing Molotov cocktails at the Community Church of Chesterland, allegedly in response to the congregation’s plans to hold two drag-related events on Saturday, April 1. Well before the Molotov cocktail strike, authorities say, Penny showed up to another drag queen event on March 11, where members of White Lives Matter were carrying “swastika flags and shouting racial and homophobic slurs and ‘Heil Hitler.’”
There were no reported injuries from the incident .
I guess the commandment “Thou shalt not kill” somehow eluded this Christian in his quest for Christian purity. – WK
